There is a new frontier in this part of Chelsea as the newly launched Joseph Gross Gallery (taking over the majority of the space that was ArtNow NY) featured the amazing technical based fine art of Ted Lawson for his show The Map Is Not The Territory, which opened last September 11th. AF came to a very rich and astounding work of precision and exploration with large-scale sculptures made from MDF,  three-dimensional mounted pieces, brass plate etchings, and large scale drawings that utilized the artist’s own blood fed intravenously via CNC (computer numerical control) machine.  The works itself claimed its territory to be a must see this Fall 2014 art season. It is a clear-cut case of conceptual translated well into a different realm. It’s very much like a sexier and heftier version of HR Gigerwhich is best summed up in two words: Surrealistically Sexy!
